  1. The amount of time I spent initializing a gallery... Was absolutely ridiculous.

    Don't make us do half the work. My initialization is 5 functions and a couple hundred lines of code. It is ridiculous. Thanks for the work and it is an excellent plugin for the end user, but I spent a day today initializing *a lightbox*. The only word I have for this, is ridiculous.

    A constructor should construct. hence the name.

  4. SEO Optimized

    I noticed my PhotoSwipe galleries aren't SEO optimized, however the alt-text and description are filled in. But Google can hardly find any of my photos. Is there a better way to make my gallery SEO optimized?

  7. Include DOM gallery builder in JS file

    Please include the initPhotoSwipeFromDOM function shown in http://photoswipe.com/documentation/getting-started.html#dom-to-slide-objects in PhotoSwipe in a JS file. That would make it much easier to get started with a gallery.

  8. Option for specify the order in which images are downloaded

    We have several photoswipe gallery on the page with one visible "main" image. We want to load this "main" images as fast as possible for a good user experience. But now images are loading in standart order as they are placed in the page html-code.

    It would be nice to have the opportunity to download the "main" pictures first, and then all the other pictures of photoswipers.

    Thanks.

  10. Option to move the controls to bottom bar?

    I use a theme with a sticky main menu that expands down. The Photoswipe controls end up under and can't be reached. An option to move the controls to the bottom bar?

  12. Clearer controls

    1) left/right controls are rather small
    2) left/right controls are currently invisible when touch is enabled, on new Windows touch enabled laptops, this may cause:
    a) controls sometimes disappear when using the laptop as a normal laptop
    b) windows does not change between tablet and desktop mode until web page is closed [amazing "design" "feature" by Microsoft but apparently true]

    Even on a small mobile device, a visual indication that it is possible to advance or go back may be better than no indication at all.

    This is all mitigated if the solution to show thumbnails at the bottom of…

  14. Cropped Thumbnail Bounds

    I've seen a number of threads where people explain the issues when image thumbnails are cropped. I created a get Thumbnail Bounds function, which will simply calculate the bounds, as though the image were not cropped.

    getThumbBoundsFn: function(index) {
    var thumbnail = ITEMS[index].el,
    pageYScroll = window.pageYOffset || document.documentElement.scrollTop,
    offset = thumbnail.offset(),
    width = thumbnail.innerWidth(),
    height = thumbnail.innerHeight(),
    thumbRatio = height / width,
    origRatio = ITEMS[index].h / ITEMS[index].w,
    cropped = thumbRatio / origRatio;
    return {
    x: offset.left - ( cropped > 1 ? ( width * cropped - width ) / 2 : 0 ),
    y: offset.top - ( cropped <…

  15. Implement an existing enhancement: no image dimensions needed

    The need to define the image dimensions is restrictive. There is a photoswipe version that removes the need to know the image dimensions:

    https://ergec.github.io/jQuery-for-PhotoSwipe/

    The suggestion is to add this enhancement to photoswipe.

  16. Please would you make this package available on NuGet?

    It's great that it's available on Git, NPM and Bower but would be even more awesome if you could provide a NuGet package as well!
